Building Healthy Communities in Osceola, WI

Osceola Medical Center Campus Expansion Project
To better serve community members of all ages, and to create an amenity that supports area vitality, Osceola Medical Center has moved forward in establishing a multifaceted healthcare campus located on 134 acres south of Osceola. A new hospital and clinic, opened in 2008, is a key component of the campus. Now, a new nursing home and memory care facility is being built on the property, with support from Otto Bremer Foundation, by OMC partner Christian Community Homes.

In 2011, with support from the Otto Bremer Foundation, OMC launched the next phase in the healthcare campus project. An addition to the medical center is under construction to provide expanded clinic, diagnostic MRI, cancer care and urgent care/emergency facilities — areas where community needs have grown beyond the medical center’s current capacity. In addition, a new facility for Wild River Fitness Center is being built on the campus, relocating from existing leased space, and expanding services to youth and others.

Osceola Medical Center is grateful to the Otto Bremer Foundation for the $75,000 grant that helped to make the project possible.
